Hi Nolan, I have a suggestion to you do; When you paint in direct as the Tulip, to make the list of colors that you use, either in your pdf or write it in a discussion for this topic. As in the painting of the Tulip, I had difficulty understanding your colours that you had taken to run this painting. I had at listen to several times before understanding your colours. I think this would be really useful for those who do not understand English perfectly as me.  Thanks for help to understand you in language. One day, I will succeed to become perfectly bilingual, but for the moment I have to guess what you say. Lucie bye :help: :clap:

I haven't been able to get on the live webinars because of work but have been watching later and painting a tulip.  :painting:
 Can't wait for the next one to post! (Hint, Hurry up and post it please Nolan)  :)
Here's a photo of my tulip so far.  It looks like a plastic tulip to me.  Maybe the water drops will help it look more alive.

Hi Anita, Thanks for your lovely comment on my Tulip, I see that you would like to paint with the oil painting, I can tell you that I am in the same situation that you, this is why I purchased "Artisan water mixable oil" and mediums that go with, because it has no odour, brushes clean with water and after you finish the painting I use SOAP Murphy or Warning Color, we have not need the turpentine to clean paint brushes. I find this formidable. If one day you want to have instructions on the paint, it would make me happy to help for mediums and also how used. 

I wish you all a beautiful week, Lucie bye

and :bigwelcome: to you too Dale  ;D Seems like we gonna get along just fine  :knuppel2:  ;)

Your tulip is looking great, well done.

This tulip may not look quite as realistic as we would like it because I have not added any of those subtle shadings, etc that make it look photographic as this is meant to be a first painting. Later we will be learning how to make the flower look photorealistic.

The main reason at this point though is that your highlights are a little bright. In this weeks class I show you how to fix that.....but you will just have to wait until I have had my  :coffee: and done my  :excercise: and maybe a bit of  :sleep: and of course, edited the video  :cool2:  :nana:

 :welcome: :flowers:Hi Dale, you did a very good job, I do not find that it is similar to plastic because your colors of the flower are superb. I congratulate you for making this experience, because for me I find it very informative and allows me to improve my work. I look forward to seeing the drops of water running because me too I worked today and I have not seen the execution. We are both in the same situation. Lucie bye :painting:

Thanks Nolan,  You are right, of course   :not_worthy:  I didn't like the orange too much so I darkened the flower, made it redder, but I forgot to darken the highlights :-\
Of course you must have your  :sleep: and  :coffee:  and I do appreciate the edited videos with the ads removed  :cheering:

Thanks for the encouraging word Lucie :D
Dale

Hi All, here is my painting ,the first with watermixable oil paints.Like the brilliant colors and happy with this painting, have not done  the waterdrops yet but will add that in the next few days.I have noticed a slight shine on one side of the painting from my camera but when i take the photo with drops shall see if that can be avoided.

Hi Dale... :welcome: . I think you have done beautifully on your tulip so far. Can't comment other than that as I haven't seen the videos yet. Thats a challenge on its own! Keep on going you're doing great.  O0

Great job Helenty :clap: well done.

Just one thing to look out for - when you stick the masking tape, look out for the sharpish corners you sometimes get. If you do find you get them, just "round them off" when painting the flower / leaves O0

 :painting: Thanks Nolan and Val, I will try and round off in future Nolan, it takes a bit of getting used to using masking tape but I can see the point of it. There has been some really work so far can't wait to see the rest.

Got two tulip paintings almost done. I got kind of sloppy on the second one. I forgot about the final shadow color on the right petal and put in the chromatic orange instead, so I had to slop some of the shadow color over that while wet. It wasn't a problem. It worked out. I thought I had it all memorized from the first painting, but I really had to follow pretty carefully again. Letting them both dry until Monday and then put in the drops on each.
I do have to say on that second one, my room was a mess like always...paper towels everywhere with paint, palette totally covered etc. Because I was rushing.
Now I can watch yesterday's show again. My computer went down (thunderstorm) while watch it yesterday.

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.
